That is how Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro dined on his first night in New York, where no one is allowed into the city’s restaurants without proof of vaccination against Covid-19.

Vaccine sceptic Bolsonaro who has bragged about not being vaccinated, saying before he left for New York that his immune system is strong enough to fend off the coronavirus.

Two Cabinet Ministers on his delegation posted a photo of Bolsonaro and aides munching on slices of pizza on a New York sidewalk on Sunday night.

Bolsonaro’s supporters praised the casual “simplicity” of their leader happy to eat pizza on the street near the Manhattan hotel where he is staying.

Asked by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson at a meeting on Monday whether he had been vaccinated, Bolsonaro replied: “No. Not yet.”

New York mayor Bill de Blasio appealed to world leaders, “including most notably Bolsonaro from Brazil”, to get vaccinated before attending the UN gathering in the city. “If you don’t want to be vaccinated, don’t bother coming,” de Blasio said at a news conference. – THE TELEGRAPH INDIA
